Affordable solar-powered device can create water out of air (Video)

Water scarcity is a growing problem around the world. Made worse by a changing climate, it’s a problem that strikes faraway places as well as places closer to home. But water shortages generally affect those places with the most sunlight. What if one could turn this surplus of sun into a water supply? That’s the question that Dutch company SunGlacier is trying to answer in the development of a cheap, solar-powered “water-maker” that uses the power of condensation to create water out of thin air. Take a look:
